Deceased organ donor rate in selected countries 2017 In 2017, Spain had the highest rate of deceased organ donors among select OECD countries with a rate of 47 people per million population. Organ donation is an important life-saving method for people with organ failure and late-stage disease.
Organ Donation

Organs can be donated from either living or deceased persons depending on the type and supply of select organs. Each country is responsible for organizing its own organ transplant systems. In the U.S., for example, organ donors are required to register to a national database. As of 2017, over half of the U.S. population had been registered as organ donors.

Global organ donations

The total number of transplants performed each year has been on the rise. Organ donations globally exceeded 135 thousand in the year 2016, with kidneys accounting for a majority of the organs transplanted. The Americas and Europe make up the largest proportion of global kidney transplants, while Africa has the lowest proportion of such transplants. The Americans and Europe also have the highest proportions of global live transplants.
